Nintendo/Sony Playstation prototype surfaces

After the Nintendo/Sony CD project was canceled, rumors swirled through the industry that working prototypes existed, but the machine had never been seen in the wild...until now. This machine, if real, is priceless, and shows us just how close Sony and Nintendo came to co-releasing a system. 

Bananaman

In 1983, when I was only four months old, a new superhero appeared on British television screens. It was a cartoon based on a comic strip from 1980, and whenever I mention it to my Canadian friends, very few of them ever seem to believe that there was a superhero whose secret superpower was utterly bananas (if you'll forgive the pun).

Teenage Mutant Censored Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is one of my all-time favourite franchises and it was a huge part of my childhood. But we in the UK had a slightly different version of the 1987 cartoon that aired in the US and Canada. And we called it 'Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles'.

Mighty Max

I had completely forgotten about Mighty Max until my friend Lee reminded me about it recently. It was a line of British toys that ended up with an American cartoon series to help promote them.

Only Smarties have the answer

I miss old Smarties. Or, to be more accurate, I miss the old packaging. Sure, the colours of smarties have changed over the years, especially after Nestlé decided to remove all artificial colourings in 2006 resulting in a temporary two year absence of blue smarties, but it's the original 80s & 90s packaging that I miss most.

Knight Rider: Radio Control Car

Like a lot of boys, I grew up fascinated by cars. But for me, I was mostly just obsessed with the ones from movies and TV shows. I was a huge fan of Herbie the 'Love Bug', the Batmobile, countless James Bond cars, the DeLorean from Back to the Future, and of course, KITT from Knight Rider.
